Federation of Local History Societies

About Us

The Federation of Local History Societies was established in 1981 to promote the interests of amateur historians and voluntary museums and to represent their views. In the intervening years the number of affiliated societies has grown to about one hundred societies.

The aims of the Federation are:

1. To encourage research in the fields of history, archaeology, folk-life and folklore.
2. To exchange information among affiliated societies through the medium of newsletters, publications, seminars etc.
3. To develop mutual support among affiliated societies.
4. To encourage the publication of information of historical interest and the better utilisation of archives.
